Praise for My Grandpa
"The relationship between grandfather and grandson is evocatively portrayed in this spare but powerful look at the warm interdependency of age and youth."
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"The story’s magic is found in its spare illustrations and hushed quiet, as though you were being whispered to under the covers."
—The New York Times Book Review
"This gentle and affecting book is narrated by a young bear whose grandfather is exhibiting signs of advanced age and dementia. The simple text uses single sentences that vacillate between the joy of the pair’s loving bond and the young bear’s honest look at Grandpa’s decline
An accessible and touching look at aging for young children."
—School Library Journal
"The warm imagery and gentle telling have appeal well beyond the utility of the subject matter and make this an interesting choice for a storytime read-aloud."
